I've asked to see if the product line is being replaced with say, '2x' HD DVD-R media.... but I suspect (since I know there was almost *zero* total sales) that Verbatim's #95359 1x HD DVD-R 1pk product, is just going the way of the Dodo.
I expect that #95531 (the dual layer bigger brother) will be following suit.
In other news, Verbatim also took this oppurtunity to add their new 4x BD-Rs to the price list. Taking into consideration the price drop on their 2x BD-R media (effective ~20min ago) the 4x media carries an approximate 55.6% premium on top of the 2x media (price wise).
Incidently, Verbatim's 2x BD-Rs now cost *EXACTLY* the same as the "cheaper" 1x 15GB HD DVD-Rs they just discontinued
Not a good day for the dozen or so people in North America with HD DVD-R burners
